We stayed 2 nights, in the 1 bedroom unit with the Spa Bath & Kitchen. The beds were perfect, not too soft and not too hard. Lovely super clean affordable accommodation with all the amenities including free wi-fi & outdoor seating. Beautiful view of the snow-capped mountain from our window. Quiet spot with very Friendly owners, nothing is too much...

We had a 2 bed room with full kitchen + wifi + a view of the snow capped volcano out the back door. No complaints. Good laundry facilities and located on the way to the ski hill. Very quiet. An easy 20 min walk to town Center

Dear Guest, It is great to know that you have enjoyed your stay at our place. We are having a lovely summer here and views to mountain are stunning. Even though it is nearly 3rd month of summer but we still have reasonable snow on Mt Ruapehu. Please visit us again. Cheers, Smita & Ashish

We booked this motel to complete the Tongariro crossing on Waitangi weekend. There were four of us in total. We booked one of the online specials which included the bus transport from the motel to the start of the walk and the transport back. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean with all the...

I was pleasantly surprised to find this very clean, comfortable motel at a reasonable price in Ohakune. Very quiet and just a short drive to the restaurants and takeaway places around the town. I'll certainly be staying there whenever I am in the area

We stayed in Ohakune for a couple of days in December. December is likely the quiet time for this part of the country which sees a lot more action in the ski season. So the town was a bit quiet and lonely. However that meant we didn't have to wait anywhere for service :) The folks at Peaks Motor Inn...

Thanks very much for your review, yes we are lucky to be so close to the Tongariro National Park, off the main road so it's nice and quiet, yet only 1 km to the village with all its cafes, supermarket,banks and other facilities. Perfect!

This motel is set up to provide accommodation to the skiing community. As motels go, this pretty much does what it says on the tin. It's a basic and no-frills motel - they still provide sachets of shampoo and the tea and coffee is cheap rubbish that I wouldn't give to my worst enemy! The last time I saw shampoo...

Hi Thanks for your review. We are in the throes of selling/packing up, as well as managing the summer avalanche of bookings at the moment, so we are currently a bit stretched, sorry. The new owners will take over in late January and I'm sure the incoming gentleman will have a very good customer service skill set. However I take...

Located very close to the restaurant area, very spacious room and very clean. Service was very friendly and did very good recommendations for restaurants. It is a very small town but very nice for an intermediate stop. They also have sky system therefore a lot of sports programs and movies were available.

My Husband was running in the annual mountain Goat race so this hotel was very conveniently located for us and at a reasonable rate.

Thanks for this very thorough review and we hope to see you again. Actually we opened the spa pool early that day (12pm) especially for the Goats. The laundry was probably opened about the same time, a bit late sorry, but people were definitely washing in there in the afternoon. Of course you can always ask us to open it....

We came to Okahune for the Tongariro crossing. After a strenuous research, I chose this place due to highly positive ratings and fair price. The place gives a real feeling of a family-run business with a quiet and cosy atmosphere. The family room we have was clean and good for the price. The shower is hot and strong. It also...
